  • Authenticating personal documents and information for immigration/emigration, marriage, adoption, succession or other purposes

  • Preparing ships protest
  • Providing authentication and secure record for a transaction, document or event
  • Witnessing affidavits and other documents for filing with foreign courts or administrative offices
Apostille by High Court of Hong Kong

Some documents bearing the signature and seal of a Public Notary are required to be further authenticated by apostilles issued by the High Court of Hong Kong.  Those documents that require authentication by apostilles are for use in Hague Apostille Convention States or Territories.

Legalization by Consulates or Commissions

Documents destined for non-Hague Apostille Convention States or Territories, after being signed and sealed by a Public Notary, will require legalization of the identity, signature and seal of the Public Notary by the relevant diplomatic representative of the state or territory in Hong Kong before these documents can be used in that state or territory.

Official Translation of Legal Documents

Documents can be officially translated into a recognised language for the relevant jurisdiction, so that the Public Notary can then notarise the document.
